  • Roasting a turkey is not difficult, actually. Thaw, clean (they come with all the organs in a bag now, so it's simple), rub butter/oil/herbs on _and under_ the skin, then put in oven. Then wait. That's it. Take out of oven, cover loosely in foil for one hour, then eat. It almost can't get easier.

    • @Ravenclaw That is not what basting does. The butter and oil rub is what will brown the skin. Opening your oven unnecessarily in the middle of cooking has no positive effect on roasting a turkey.
